This course has taught me so much. I have learned to open my mind and listen to the families when they speak to me about their child. As a mother, you want the best for your child and our preschool families are no different. I'm going to share a hope and goal I have for the EC field and for myself.
Hope: My hope for myself is to continue to remain open minded and anti-bias when working with young children and their families. When children begin their preschool experience, families look to us (the professionals) to make the experience as easy on the child/family as possible. They look to us to accept them as family. My hope is to continue to treat families and children as family.
Goal: My goal for the EC field is for the field to provide anti-bias curriculum and to never prejudice against any family or child. Each child is an individual with individual needs and the EC field should cherish and honor the individual needs of all children.
I would like to end this course with a note of thanks. I cannot thank my peers and my professor enough for the support and feedback I received. I enjoyed the interactions with everyone and the growth I've experienced can only be witnessed in my work--cannot be expressed in words.
